AVID is a program that began in 1980 to support students in learning how to academically perform at their best, participate in challenging curriculum, and prepare for entrance into a four year college or university upon graduation. AVID is growing every year! Today, AVID impacts more than 1.2 million students in 44 states and 16 other countries/territories. AVID students must have the desire and determination to do what it takes to accomplish their goals and make dreams of success a reality. It is a rigorous elective students commit to for one year in the middle school and requires support from parents, teachers, and the student to be successful.
